Agency at OPM Gets ‘A+’ on FY 2017 Small Business Contracting Scorecard

The Office of Personnel Management’s office of small and disadvantage business utilization got a grade of “A+” on the Small Business Administration’s fiscal 2017 scorecard that evaluates federal agencies’ efforts to meet their small business prime and subcontracting targets on an annual basis.

SBA also uses the Small Business Procurement Scorecard to provide contracting data and report progress of agencies, OPM said Tuesday.

“The OSDBU worked to inform the small business community of the prime and subcontracting opportunities available with OPM by engaging the small business communities around the country,” said Desmond Brown, OSDBU director of OSDBU at OPM.

“These efforts allowed OPM to exceed our agreed upon FY 2017 goals by 20.7 percentage points in providing contracts to various segments of the small business community,” Brown added.
